's a condition of life and what obama's hoping is that republicans if he's re-elected sort of collapse a little bit in exhaustion and work with him in a short period of time. >> and regardless if it's a popular electoral split, it's going to be close. almost 50% of the country will feel disenchanted with whoever is elected. and the fault lines will be quite amazing. >> let's talk about where we were last week. it felt like there was momentum in mitt romney's direction. where are they tonight? >> there was some momentum still building off that successful denver debate. and then it sort of hit the reality of two more debates after that and the continuing campaign. and i think that this momentum was starting to slow before the hurricane hit. but certainly the hurricane had a piece of this. the fact that the president gets to look presidential. you had him up there with his bomber jacket in air force one. >> and chris christie of endorsed hip. -- hymn. >> -- endorsed him. >> we talk about crunching the numbers. john is exactly right that in our own polling and in the other national polls, it is a p
're going to find out. can obama win re-election with a historically small share of the white vote which basically means will the nonwhite vote share of the electorate rise to new levels that will allow him to survive, like latino support and black support. obama people say hey turn out among blacks and la zwroins will be as high as in 2008 and republicans saying no it won't. do you have a sense who is right in that dispute? >> increasingly what you've seen a department coalition over the years that has been built on african-americans, hispanic, women. we see the huge gap, gender gap between barack obama and mitt romney. and some white men and increationly you see republican party that's the majority, large majority of white men and a gap on the other side. so that is a test, i think we'll see. one of the questions about all the polls we've seen are the models they are using correct. is it going to be 75% white electorate? is it 77%? 72%? is the hispanic share of the electorate going to be 7%, 10%, 12%? so i think we'll get those answers to those questions. an interest ago side to that s
that he faces re-election in a pretty democratic state, and obama understands that he faces re-election next week. those are political realities. they're politicians, and they don't deny that. but they were doing their jobs, and i think christie's role here, as i'm sure you know as a former governor, it was a big deal for christie to come out and do what he did. that also really hurt romney. >> eliot: yes, that was the political maneuver of the week. he played it perfectly. switch gears for a moment. i don't want to say that anything is over and done, but the president is comfortable. the united states senate, a pivot or blocking position for the past couple of years. any particular race there that you think is interesting that has evolved that is demonstrative with what in our politics over the last couple of months? >> i think there are several. the north dakota race there is a good chance. i think missouri, claire mccaskill has a good chance to hold her seat. the most important race that i would point to is the indiana race which is richard murdoch the tee party republican who beat d
they can deliver unity. that's something that got president obama elected. remember when he first gave a speech in 2004 at the democratic convention he said there's no liberal america, there's no conservative america, there's the united states of america. he's going back to that argument and the terrible storm sandy the hurricane actually helped him make that argument because he got praise from two republican governors of new jersey and virginia for his efficient handling of the relief effort after that storm. so it's helping him make the case that he can bring the country together even though most his critics say he failed to do that. >> that's interesting. here's the thing. even if the president is re-elected, it's not as if the house is going to change dramatically in terms of its makeup, he'll still have a narrow margin in the senate. how will he go about doing that? how does he bring about that change? >> right. one of the things you might actually see here and you pointed to that is that this could be a status quo election if in fact president obama is re-elected, it's likely tha
'mparticularly if president obama wins re' election, he's made it clear he's not going to extend the bush tax cuts for the top wage earners. house republicans have not moved at all towards a willingness to do that. having a compromise remains to be seen for me. perhaps the election will be such that there will be chastening with weighing in and those who want to keep the tax cuts in place. i don't see it right now but we'll have to wait to tuesday. >> eliot: i think the white house will do nothing let those tax cuts expire and then negotiate from a position of strength and then they can get the deal they want. why is that wrong as a negotiating strategy? >> well, you know, you could go through it in a lot of different ways when it makes sense and when it doesn't make sense. one of the things that is getting very little attention. while the business community appears to come together and started to talk responsibly about shared sacrifice in a deal that doesn't just put all the burden on the middle class the question is whether or not their actions are going to be anywhere near consistent with their lips. so fa
courage amazing, and you have joy. >> thank you. >> i have a question, after the mccain-obama election, in one of the articles he said that if we monitor a third world country and 10-point spread between exit polls and election results, you would be sure there's fraud, and apparently, that was the fact, but now i read because of the amazing expense that all the major news outlets are no longer doing exit polls. >> oh, well, i'm disappointed because they've been so accurate in the past. [laughter] the one thing that finally -- it finally occurredded to me, and you may have seen my making this point the other night. polls have often been wrong. they've never been wrong in our direction. never. never. i mean, you have the bradley effect from here in los angeles when tom, long time mayor of los angeles was running for re-election. he was way out ahead of the polls, got those truman duey headlines the next say saying he won the election based on polls and early returns, and it turnedded out, oh, no, he lost. the same thing happened to doug wilder in virginia, david dinkins in new york. even
all this away from us. governor romney is going to take away our lollipops. barack obama the election has been stolen from us. >> good to see john gibson and besides looting and bloodshed. what else can we expect? >> told you. gay marriage. there is a connection. gay marriage and kittens going into trashcans. predictions coming from both sides mostly from the left. i remember from twitter, if obama wins, it's baloney. >> i believe it's a bunch of crap. i don't believe the country is as polarized as it once was. i just don't think it exists anymore. we had a black president. this is not the 1960s or the 50s. and giving guys like this attention is giving attention of the new black panther party that consists of eight people. it amplifies something that really doesn't exist. that is the case with this guy. idiot who burns the quran and causes problems but they were just a minuscule number of people. >> greg: you have to fill the bucket with things that not matter. are we this polarized or just the polish people? >> i don't think so, but i do think, you could create something here. you co

[ ♪ music ♪ ] >> obama: it's good to be back. >> romney: if the president is re-elected he still will be unable to work with the people in progress. >> our top priority is defeat president obama the second time. >> i can't thank president obama enough for his personal concern and passion. >> people are dumpster diving, and what they're going after here is the food. >> this is america folks. it is not supposed to be this way. >> job reports appear relatively good news. >> i think it would be helpful to have a president who actually understand job creation. >> ohio, i'm not ready to give up to make sure that the middle class is growing. >> you vote or you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry. i'm told that's not accurate. >> i'm tired of bronco bamma and mitt romney. >> it will be over soon abby. >> cenk: this is fun. presidentpresident obama is in ohio. he has a couple of elbows of his own. >> you have folks at the jeep plant who is have been calling their employers worried, is it true are our jobs being shipped to china? and the reason why they're making these calls is be
is not for obvious reason sois think if obama is re-elected i'm not sure, it is to the going to be a top priority. >> re-elected? >> re-elected, just gave me a cold chill. >> maybe in the second term it will be. if obama is re-elected he will be. and i suspect they would be happy to go back to george w. bush was trying to do a few years ago. but it is a tragedy we haven't really talked about because it is much harder to get something passed. >> how do you see it. >> i think the republican party is kursd and it's cursed itself. and they spent 22 debate, presidential candidates arguing about who was the most against or building the biggest, widest most daunting even electrified wall to keep people out. and mitt romney ran to the right of newt gingrich and rick perry. he was the most try ghent-- strident, round them up and toss them out of the country. >>nergy time, and political capital to pass legislation state after state to make it more difficult to vote, primarily for latinos. and third they don't campaign in their neighborhoods or their community t they don't ask for their vote, and finally mi
prices at the pumps and fewer jobs. today gasoline cost twice as much as when president obama was elected. when i'm elected we're going to change course on energy. we can help hold down prices at the pump, grow new energy and manufacturing jobs and get north american energy independent.

first african-american president. do you think, if barack obama is not elected, tom, that it negates some of that? it dispels some of that accomplishment? >> i don't think it has anything to do with the african-american. the president would be the first to say i'm being related by what i did in office not in terms of the color of my skin. >> but in terms of history judging it? >> i think 9 sense of history will be did he succeed as president? that's the test. we don't give people an automatic pass, quite honestly. they have to measure up to the job that we expect them to do for everyone. he did inherit a very difficult situation. economically, two of the longest wars in the nation's history. but for the first time of years, until the election of 2010, he seemed not to have an extraordinarily clear, firm idea of how he wanted to lead the country, and how he wanted to -- how he was going to persuade the rest of us that it was in our best interest in the way that he was going to lead the country. >> more of our conversation today at 12:00 noon. we talk about similarities with this elect
're on the "countdown" to the election. we'll give you compelling reasons why you must give president obama another four years. we'll focus on three election topics incredibly important issues that some how failed to make headlines in this brutal campaign. first the war on drugs. ethan nadelman said although obama has been a disappointment in some ways romney would be a disaster in fighting the the war on drugs. then in the aftermath of super storm sandy, climate change. it still has not been a critical part of our political debate. we'll ask josh becker why president obama deserves an a-plus in the way he handled hurricane sandy. and then we weigh in on what to expect if governor romney goes to the white house. we'll bring a look at the tight race with fresh statistics from dave goldberg, and finally jesse jackson why obama's track record is enough to give him a second term. we'll begin with the war on drugs. ethan nadelman wants to legalize marijuana among others things. he has a clear message. take marijuana out of the courts. tax it like other drug and move on. ethan. great to have you on the show.
obama and mitt romney making their final arguments as election day approaches. a couple of days away now, romney visiting three battle ground states, new hampshire, iowa and colorado. and iowa is on the president's itinerary along with wisconsin ohio and virginia. and gas shortages a big problem in the wake of hurricane sandy. the defense of defense is setting up emergency mobile gas stations to ease shortages in the new york city metro area and this is the scene in new jersey, the state is now rationing gasoline in 12 different counties to try to ease the lines at gas stations and drivers with odd numbered plates can buy gas today. if you have even numbered plates in new jersey you have to buy gas on even numbered days so that would be tomorrow. and then days after, sandy, ripping through the northeast cleanup continues. we'll be back later. ♪ >> welcome back to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot, well, the final weekend before the presidential election and national polls show the race in a dead heat. like many analysts, republican pollster ayers says the key to victory for
an election unless you think there's potential. >> paul: let's take a president obama ad attacking mitt romney in ohio. >> it's said that character is what we do when we think no one is looking. >> mitt romney thought no one was looking when he attacked 47% of americans, his company shipped jobs overseas, his plan cuts millionaires taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said and what his name would do. >> paul: taking our name in vein, the 15th time, the wall street journal does not agree with any of the-- >> what do you think? >> this is a-- this is a distilled message (laughter) of the campaign. >> he keeps returning to this class warfare theme and this is in ohio and thinks the outsourcing, hitting the rich. 47% plays well with less educated white men in the midwest and where he's focusing ads. >> paul: is that really a good closing argument, dan? that's not an argument for the second term. >> it's not. and i honestly do not understand it, paul. it's -- i think it reflects barack obama's antipathy toward mitt romne
-ryan. a high turnout, a true democratic turnout, will absolutely re-elect obama. >> yeah, and some states, from what i understand, the voting forums are like 30 pages to go through. it's going to be interesting. >> i really think that another long-term job is to look at this voting situation very seriously because florida in 2000 was actually won by gore as every later survey showed, and yet, it went to bush. i mean, we have a very, very flawed voting system. but the good thing i see as i travel is that people, especially women, are not only ready to vote, they will fight to vote. they will not go away until they vote. >> as everyone should. gloria steinem, thank you so much. appreciate you being here. >> thank you. >>> late night comedians proving they aren't afraid to take on anyone. even a hurricane. find out what letterman and his pals had to say about super storm sandy. this is hayden. he's five years old. that's elizabeth. and that's skyler... and his mom, nancy. they're just a few of the californians who took it on themselves to send you a message about what they need to restore years of
the general election. president obama and governor romney fighting it out for every last vote, especially in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on
the election in the waning hours of the campaign. and what shuld worry the obama campaign with their race so tight that you can hear is quilt is not the unraveling cover-up on been gauzy or a bust response to a major est coast hurricane. what should worry the obama campaign is that this race is all about the economy, his record, and responsibility where the unemployment rate and in this economic recovery now stand. voters simply trust governor romney more on this most imrtant issue. let's reveal -- that is revealed in poll after poll. a new "washington post" poll shows governor romney turning the economy around. with an 11-point lead as well, and to america trust moreo work with both parties in congress. so to give this election does turn on the economy, governor romney has, perhaps, an edge going into the election's final hours. we will take up the election, which way the swing states we will breaking key demographics with former bush chief of staff and campaign savant karl rove. retired navy admiral james lyons joins us he says the american people deserve to hear the truth about pin gauzy,
to the polls with me. we'll win this election. we'll win ohio. >> new polls show president obama polling ahead of mitt romney among likely voters in the battleground states of virginia. in virginia, a reuters poll has president obama at 49% and mitt romney at 45%. in florida, reuters has president obama at 48% and mitt romney at 46%. in michigan, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. and in colorado, a ppp poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire, a new england college poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 44%. tonight, nate silver the "new york times" blog forecasts that president obama has an 81% of winning re-election and that he will win 304 electoral college votes and mitt romney will within 234. and the great thing about next week is i will no longer have to say ppp poll. i'm done with that poll. these polls are tight. these polls, you know, i refuse to use the language the poll shows president obama winning 50, because every one of these polls is within the margin of error. every one of them. so they are really showing
have just a 3% chance of winning the election. conversely, if barack obama lost ohio, he would only have an 8% chance of victory. that shows you just how incredibly important ohio may turn out to be. >> well, it's an important -- it's critical. it's a very diverse state. but you know, barack obama's very firm stand in saving the american automobile industry has paid important dividends in ohio. this morning i was in youngstown and youngstown, we produced the chevy cruz. that's a gm product that is the direct result of the president's intervention to bail out the automobile industry. >> as a former commander yourself, how do you think the president's done this week in >> i think he's done extremely well in terms of his sympathy and empathy for the groups, his visit. i think he was smart not to go into new york city, where it's too congested, too many problems. i think he's also done well in terms of showing the power of the office by just the latest move of having the military assist in delivery of fuel. it also shows up the hollowness of governor romney, his flip-flopping. for examp
the campaigns on the last weekend before the election. president obama will make his first stop today and paul steinhauser following mitt romney in pennsylvania. let's start with dan in ohio. what is on the president's schedule sph. >> well, you can expect that the president will continue to hammer away at this mitt romney on the auto industry. you pointed out there at the top of the show how this was a big push by the president yesterday in going after that ad by suggesting that jobs from a jeep plant would go overseas to china and, in fact yesterday, the president was recounting that he heard that some employees had gone to their managers with concerns that they would lose their jobs through china. so, the president using this big push to show, in his words, that mitt romney is massaging the facts. so, we expect that the president will continue to make that argument here today. the reason for that is because, as you know, so many jobs here in the state of ohio dependent on the auto industry and the bailout is something the president has been touting for a long time, but certainly ramped up i
obama responds. we'll have the latest from the campaign next. >>> with just four days until the election, four days? did i say four days? four days until the election, presidential candidates campaigned in ohio where moments ago, mitt romney said this. >> your state is the won i'm counting on, by the way. this is the one we have to win. >> a new cnn poll of likely voters in ohio shows president obama polling at 50% and mitt romney at 47%. the president made three stops in ohio today where he talked about mitt romney's lie that chrysler is moving american jobs to china. >> you've got to own what you say. this isn't a game. these are people's jobs at stake. these are people's lives. companies like g.m. and chrysler, they put a lot of time and effort and money into building up their brand and letting americans know that the american auto industry is back. and we don't want suddenly a bunch of ads saying stuff that's not true. you don't scare hard working americans just to scare up some votes. you know i tell the truth. and you know i fight for working families every single day as hard as i
